      About 40 per cent of youth sex offenders are themselves abuse victims, says a
      survey....The country's first study into the behaviour and backgrounds of
      young sex offenders found that 39.4 per cent of the 482 males surveyed had
      been sexually abused and 43.8 per cent physically abused. Nearly 70 per cent
      came from broken homes."

      West Sees Glittering Prizes Ahead in Giant Oilfields


      Published July 11, 2002 in the Times of London
      by Michael Theodoulou in Nicosia and Roland Watson

      THE removal of President Saddam Hussein would open Iraq's rich new
      oilfields to Western bidders and bring the prospect of lessening dependence
      on Saudi oil. No other country offers such untapped oilfields whose
      exploitation could lessen tensions over the Western presence in Saudi
      Arabia....
      Gerald Butt, Gulf editor of the Middle East Economic Survey, said: "The
      removal of Saddam is, in effect, the removal of the last threat to the free
      flow of oil from the Gulf as a whole."

      Iraq has oil reserves of 112billion barrels, second only to Saudi Arabia,
      which has some 265billion barrels. Iraqi reserves are seven times those of
      the combined UK and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea. But the prize for
      oil companies could be even greater. Iraq estimates that its eventual
      reserves could be as high as 220billion barrels.
